Luckily it has excellent bellows and the brass reeds look great. Thank you Catherine Dear Sirs I have a Wheatstone English system 20471 which is very sad but still in use.The woodwork looks good too apart from the odd scratch. I have managed to snap a couple of the bolts years ago and the bellows are in poor shape. Rough idea of cost - or should I seek to part exchange, seeing as you have similar for sale with the work already done to them. I have two concertinas that I wish to sell; can supply photos later.
Hole to bellows at one end nearest end bearing name. The bellows appear to be in good order and no repairs or holes are obvious.
